Thinking about going into business or already in it and wondering how to put your best foot forward?
This webinar will enable you to make key decisions about your business idea. Starting your business requires careful planning, preparation, motivation, and lots of hard work. Participating in this webinar will help you make important decisions about your business idea and help you to determine its feasibility.
As part of registering for the webinar, you will also be provided with a 90 page handbook which contains key information and activities which will assist you in researching the feasibility of your prospective business or business idea.
Once you have completed all the activities in the handbook, and have participated in the webinar, you will have discovered whether your business or business idea has the potential to succeed and should have made a decision on whether to continue or not.
If you decide to continue, there are a variety of workshops available both as online learning programs and face to face which you can access. During the webinar you will also be introduced to other sources of free information and resources.
Even if you have already embarked on your business journey, you may still gain great benefits from participating in this webinar and from working through the handbook.

  • Now down the bottom there is also a chat function. I want you to drop me a line when ever you want i.e ‘I am really enjoying this’ or ‘I have experienced this problem too’. However when it comes to questions in the final 10 minutes you have one of two options, you can put your hand up to indicate you have a question and we will unmute you, announcing you first or you can submit a question via text and you can choose who to direct your question to. Today its just me, in the future there will be others.By default you will all be muted throughout the presentation but don’t forget to keep interacting with this suite of icons I’ve just introduced you to. Sound good? Show me a response now.
  • This is not school – I don’t want you to sit there and take a lecture, I want you to interact. The more information we have, the better job we are doing. So let me take you through the functions and how I want you to participate in today’s lesson: If I ask a question, I want you to respond by displaying an icon or dropping me a textSo here’s some icons you can show meThe hand – we’ll use this to sow you have a question you want to ask – we’ll do this in the last 10 minutesGreen tick – use this to show me you have already got this sorted i.e I have done this. Click on the green tick now. Red cross – use this to show me you haven’t done this. Click on the red cross now. You have the option to tell me to go faster or slower – I have a tendency to go fast but remember a certain levelEmoticons – these are my favourite and I’m pretty sure they’ll be yours too. Some in particular I want to point our, if you have as a result of what I am telling you had a light bulb moment click on this. One I don’t think you will need is the cup of tea. Click this now to show me you know how to do it.

You can sit in the comfort of your own home or even someone elses, no need to arrange care, find parks, commute – just sit back, relax and LEARN! So here goes…
